Camper Christina

Camper Christina is a youtuber and outdoor enthusiast who has been sharing her adventures and inspiring others since 2015. She started backcountry camping in 2002 and fell in love and now camps year-round. In 2015, with no one to go with, she began solo tripping, and although it took a bit more courage and time to get used to, it is currently her preference. Now, with more experience and confidence, she ventures into some extremely challenging and remote locations in the Canadian backcountry, usually alone, and loves to share her adventures with others through her social media platforms and youtube channel.  Christina has also recently released two online courses, Backcountry Camping for Beginners and Winter Camping for Beginners,  which are completely online and can be found on her website.
